Louisville Orchestra to Present the First of the NightLites

Print On Friday, October 17 at 6:30pm at the Brown Theatre and Saturday, October 18 at 7:30pm at Ogle Center, The Louisville Orchestra will present the first of the NightLites concerts, String Fling, led by Principal Pops Conductor, Bob Bernhardt. The evening will include Edvard Grieg's Holberg Suite, Piotr Ilych Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings in C Major, Karl Jenkins' "Diamond Music" from Palladio and Astor Piazzolla's The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires with guest soloist Benny Kim on violin. The evening will end with Ralph Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis. Garnering acclaim from audiences and critics alike, Benny Kim has performed on five continents in nearly 20 countries. As the Washington Post observed, "Kim's emotional depth and musical carriage are his real drawing cards. His is a style that touches the peak of romantic violin playing." His spectacular performances of the Sibelius Violin Concerto with the Utah Symphony, conducted by Keith Lockhart, resulted in the Salt Lake City Tribune review, "Kim's titanium technique was only surpassed by his and his violin's exquisite, pearly colorations."
